Senators antt Representatives - Ad-

Heels 1b. Corridors. i-
Nothing dropped from the Federal plum
tree yesterday, and the anxious gentlemen
who loitered outside the privy council -will
have to sweat all over again. The Con
gressional delegation didn't shake the tree
at all; only received a heap at applica
tions and placed them on file, -without
saying a word about them, except per
haps to talk them over.
Senator Mitchell was there; so was Sen
ator Fulton; also Representative "William
son and RepresentaUve Hermann. The
Big Four went Into conclave at 2 o'clock.
Three o'clock came, and still they were
at it; then 4 o-ciock, and next 5. Gentle
north breeze3 floated through the open
windows into the council chamber to cool
the Intense ardor of the work within.
Room 500 it was, In Hotel Portland; ele
vator boy knows the place. Sometimes a
devoted, admirer of one or all of the Con
gressmen would butt In, but he would
stay only a few moments.
Public interest in the council was in
tense. The cerebral batteries oa the out
side were all highly charged with expec
tancy. Several of the best and meetest
aspirants were In the city, and they made(
their legs very Ured walking- lmpauentiy
up and down the hard pavements. Real
ly they perspired, even though the day
was cool. But nobody will yet inherit his
inheritance not yet a while. Next week
the delegation wlU meet again, perhaps
Tuesday, or mayhap "Wednesday. Then
may come the finale of the great dream
fugue, and yet maybe not. It is a con
solation, at least, that no lives were lost
After the meeting all hand3 went to
dinner. Senator Fulton then hied, to As
toria and Mr. Hermann returned to Rose-
burg. Mr. "Williamson will probably turn
back homeward today.
Many Shovr Interest.
Georee C. Brownell. candidate for DIs
trlct Attorney, came down from Oregon
City in all his glory, attired In a stunning
blue suit, cuffs, collar and a fresh dun
colored hat. The Clackamas gentleman
was vcrv attenUve to the members of the
delegation before the council took -up.
Judge Moreland, his rival, was spry. w.
havintr trot ud with the sun. John Hall,
who continues to hold office until his sue
cessor Is annolnted. was quite willing fo;
the rivalry between Brownell and More-
land to continue indefinitely.
A throne of respectable gentlemen
loitered about the public places. John
Fox, of Astoria was in town, and so was
"Walter Robb.. of the same city. w. it.
Ellis,- of "Pendleton, was in evidence, Ex
State Senator "Tod" Cameron, of Jack
sonville, though of the minority party,
had his ears open for news. State Sen
ator K. V. Carter, of Ashland, was con
spicuous in a bright, new straw hat. G.
B. Dlmick, of Oregon City, came down to
see how his friend. George Brownell. was
making It. Ex-Governor Geer looked
down from on high with the appearance
of a man who was sightseeing only. Ira
B. Riddle, of Douglas County, was in the
city attending to business connected with
his candidacy for one or tne iana omces
at Roseburg. Asa B. Thompson, who
was recently appointed to the La Grande
Land Office, was taking in the sights, u.
"W. Klnnalrd, of Clackamas, was on hand
to congratulate successful aspirants
Frank Grant, candidate for Deputy Dis
trict Attorney, was seen In several places.
C. E. Kenyon, of Burns, who would like
to be receiver of the Burns Land Office,
was a frequent figure. William Miller, of
Ontario, State Prosecuting Attorney of
the Ninth District, surveyed the ground
from the high places. And these were
onlv a few of the personages whose brains
secreted political thoughts while the privy
council upstah-3 was supposed to be cut
Mr. Hermann was a little short of breath
when he lolned the council. He was late
and had hurried. He had left the Im
nerlal Hotel amply ahead of the appointed
hour but had been stopped a score of
times in, his walk of. three blocks to tho
PorUand HoteL The persons Whosaccost-
ed him were choice friends, who must
have a handshake before they would let
him go on. Mr. Hermann found the two
Senators and Me. "Williamson waiting for
him. Thereat all hands, Senator Mitch

Many candidates' were up for appoint
ment. Their applications made a great
big heap of papers. Senator Fulton and
Mr. Williamson were somewhat discour
aged at first when they looked, from the
long Ust of applicants to the short list of
jobs. But Senator Mitchell ana nepre
sentatlve Hermann are old at the busi
ness, and started, right In. The names as
they came up were classified as to the
offices. -The merits or demerits of the can
didates were not discussed, at least the
members of the delegation say so, nor
were any recommendations to the Presl
dent decided upon.
